JERUSALEM (AP) The funeral procession of the four Jewish victims of a Paris terror attack on a kosher supermarket has begun.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and other public figures were gathering Tuesday in Jerusalem for the burial of Yohan Cohen, Yoav Hattab, Francois-Michel Saada and Phillipe Braham.
All died Friday during a tense hostage standoff at the market on the eastern edge of Paris. The bodies were brought by plane to Israel early Tuesday morning.
The four were among 17 people killed in a wave of terror attacks carried out over three days last week by militants claiming allegiance to al-Qaida and the Islamic State extremist groups.
The attack deepened fears among European Jewish communities shaken by rising anti-Semitism.
